PostPosted: Fri Dec 02, 2011 4:05 am    Post subject: Which is a more user-friendly 'Cocker?

Hey all, I've been looking to get a mech Autococker for some time now and came across a a VERY clean 2k Autococker with an ANS bolt with a delrin pin for $100.

I have some questions about this gun... First off, is that a good deal? How are the stock pneumatics on the WGP 2000 Autococker? Anything different from the old brass pneumatics than from the ones on the 'Cokers that are 2k4+? Will this gun be durable enough for speedball?

I have also been looking at getting a Psychoballistics Superbolt with a bottomline kit for $24.99 for a while now and maybe throw on some Prostock pneumatics on it later because I heard the stock pneu's are bad. I also heard that the stock pneu's can be fixed by switching the o-rings in the 3 way with #6 o-rings... is it really that simple? If so, where can I find some?

So my main question is, which is a more user-friendly, reliable, Autococker for someone who knows little about them that will be durable enough for speedball? Keep in mind that I really only want to spend $110 max

Thanks for your time.

First things first, I've never owned an Autococker. Take my advice with some sodium chloride.

I would say though, get the 2K one if you can. It's American made, people will know you're for real if you step on to the field with it and there's more resale value.

Second, if you want to save some money, other Psychoballistics can be had for cheaper.

I've seen plenty of threads where people are practically begging people to buy them from them. This guy has one for cheaper than I&I.

I never knew that WGP made their markers in America. Did a foreign country make the parts and assembled here or was everything made in America?

I'm honestly leaning towards the 2k since it's old school and looks like it would be the most durable, but I just wanted to see people's opinions on the two guns.

I'd skip the Superbolt and stick with the WGP Cocker. Nothing wrong with the brass bodied pneumatics as long as the seals/o rings haven't hardened up. The brass pneumatics on my 98 sidefeed is still in decent shape, might need new o rings by now though.
A properly tuned Cocker is a joy to shoot. Get someone who knows how to properly tune it and then LEAVE IT ALONE. Run it on compressed air instead of CO2 and it will be super consistent. As for speedball, you will be outgunned but the Cocker will be more accurate than any other marker out there.

stay away from psychoballistics. they are cheap, you will have thread problems where the threads will strip out.

stay away from the brass pneumatics. they are the oldest and you will have problems.

this one is a little bit more expensive.

cockers can still be good. if you aren't trying to keep up with ramping guns, you'll be fine. don't want to say that i'm an expert, but i've been around a cocker or two.

as long as you understand that the parts interact with each other, and that if you start messing around, it can throw off the balance and you will have problems.

Yeah, super bolts are junk.

if you're looking to get a mech, get a black magic or a outcast.

And I know Ill get flamed, but if you're new, and just want a no-hassles cocker, get a trilogy. I absolutely loved my trilogy. It just always worked, and still had that cocker feel.
